Littlefinger’s scheming earned hlặng no rewards in season seven. He plotted lớn turn Sansa và Arya against one another, encouraging Sansa to see her little sister as a threat, và leading Arya to believe sầu Sansa was a Lannister sympathiser who wanted khổng lồ usurp Jon’s crown. With Bran’s help though, the sisters saw through Baelish’s plot và turned the tables by executing him for the murder of their aunt. Littlefinger’s throat was cut by Arya using the very dagger with which Bran was almost killed. Despite Littlefinger’s machinations, the Stark siblings ended the season united, recognising that “the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.”

Arya’s kill-danh sách, which currently features: Cersei Lannister, Gregor Clegane, Ilyn Payne, Melisandre, and Beric Dondarrion, was what brought her baông xã khổng lồ Westeros. In the season seven premiere, she used her Faceless Men magic to disguise herself as the deceased Walder Frey và fatally poison his entire family in revenge for their collusion with the Lannisters at the Red Wedding. She left only Frey’s young bride khổng lồ tell the tale, telling her to lớn spread the message “the North remembers.”


Next on Arya’s to-murder các mục was Queen Cersei, but on hearing (from Hot Pie! Hot Pie lives!) that Jon had reclaimed Winterfell from the Boltons, she diverted her journey lớn King’s Landing and instead headed North. On her way home, Arya encountered her direwolf Nymeria, who’d been living wild since being sent away lớn protect her from Cersei’s wrath in season one. They had a moment, và went their separate ways. Once at Winterfell, Brienne of Tarth agreed to lớn train with Arya, clearly impressed by her proficiency with a sword.

Someone whose name Arya struông xã off her danh mục without killing, Sandor Clegane aka The Hound, continued his tìm kiếm for redemption with the Brotherhood Without Banners. Returning lớn the cottage of a farmer and his daughter the Hound had robbed in season four only to lớn find them dead, he buried the corpses in atonement for his earlier crime. At the cottage, Sandor had a vision in the flames of the Night King’s army, which pushed the group to continue their journey North.


Bran, whose warging & greenseeing powers had enabled him to lớn use ravens to lớn spy on the Night King’s army throughout the season, also learned some game-changing info about Jon Snow. Bran already knew that Jon wasn’t Ned Stark’s bastard, thinking him the love child of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen & Ned’s sister Lyanna. Not quite. Thanks to lớn Gilly reading through some old manuscripts at the Citadel, Samwell Tarly learned that Rhaegar had his marriage khổng lồ Elia Martell annulled, then remarried in secret. Jon’s true name is Aegon Targaryen & he’s therefore no bastard but a legitimate heir khổng lồ the Iron Throne. Game-changer.


Samwell spent the first half of the season training lớn be a maester at the Citadel in Old Town under the tutelage of Archmaester Ebrose (Jim Broadbent). A frustrating time, Sam was mostly given grunt work và forbidden access to the texts he’d come there to study in order khổng lồ learn how to defeat the White Walkers. He did however, learn that a vast seam of Dragonglass, a material able to lớn kill White Walkers & Wights, was located underneath Dragonstone. He wrote lớn Jon about his discovery, which helped khổng lồ convince Jon lớn accept an invitation to lớn Daenerys’ Westeroham base camp.

Sam rebelled against the archmaester’s rules by carrying out an experimental medical procedure on Ser Jorah Mormont, who’d come to the Citadel in tìm kiếm of a cure for his greyscale. In an especially gross sequence, Sam cured Ser Jorah, who then travelled lớn Dragonstone to serve Dany.

After the Citadel’s maesters refused lớn act on Bran Stark’s warning to lớn the Seven Kingdoms about the impending threat from the Night King, either believing it a fantasy or trusting in the impregnability of the Wall, Sam stole some restricted books, took Gilly và Little Sam, & headed North. There he met with Bran, where he learned of Jon’s true parentage & shared his knowledge of Jon’s father’s secret marriage.

Daenerys, meanwhile, had set up siêu thị at her birthplace of Dragonstone (home page to lớn the Targaryens before Stannis Baratheon lived there) with a bvà of allies against Cersei, which included Tyrion, Varys, Yara và Theon Greyjoy, Olenna Tyrell and Dornish leader Ellaria S&. Instead of flying her dragons straight to King’s Landing and setting the place on fire lượt thích she wanted, Tyrion advised Dany khổng lồ avoid slaughtering civilians và instead target Lannister family seat Casterly Rochồng. While the Greyjoy fleet would sail to Dorne to mobilise Ellaria’s Dornish troops, the Unsullied would take the Lannister castle.

At least, that was the plan. What actually transpired was that Euron Greyjoy attacked his niece và nephew’s fleet en-route, killing two Sandsnakes & capturing Tyene và Ellaria S& và Yara Greyjoy. Theon bottled the chance lớn fight to lớn save sầu Yara and literally jumped ship before being rescued by the last surviving Greyjoy ship.


Theon and his Ironborn men returned lớn Dragonstone, where Jon Snow first threatened, then forgave sầu Theon for betraying the Starks at Winterfell. Theon later began khổng lồ redeem himself when he engaged in a brutal fight with one of Yara’s men who had refused lớn mount a rescue attempt for her. Mid-fight, Theon learned that a weakness can also be a strength when his opponent couldn’t injure hlặng by kicking hlặng in the nuts as, well, Ramsay had removed that particular vulnerability.

Speaking of eunuchs and vulnerability, Grey Worm & Missandei shared a thắm thiết scene in which he declared that he now had an unprecedented weakness—her. They shared a night of passion before he went off to lớn battle.

*

Missandei, it’s worth mentioning, had earlier raised an important nerdy translator point about Melisandre’s much-discussed prophecy about Azor Ahai ‘the prince that was promised’ who was destined to lớn bring an end to the impending darkness. In the original High Valyrian, ‘prince’ is genderless & could refer to lớn either a man or a woman, i.e. Dany is now very much a front runner for the position.

When the Unsullied arrived at Casterly Roông chồng & found it all but undefended, it was clear they’d also been had. Anticipating his younger brother’s military tactics, Jaime Lannister had sacrificed the family seat in order lớn lure the Unsullied fleet lớn a vulnerable position where Euron Greyjoy could destroy it. The Unsullied were thus stranded và preoccupied while the Lannister & Tarly armies sacked the Tyrell castle of Highgarden. Jaime’s plan seemed to go off without a hitch, & he killed Lady Olenna by making her drink poisoned wine. Before she died, Olenmãng cầu confessed that it was her & not Tyrion who poisoned Jaime and Cersei’s son Joffrey at his wedding. Before she died, she wanted Cersei to know that.

Victorious from their defeat of Highgarden, with wagons of Tyrell gold safely transported to King’s Landing ready khổng lồ pay off the substantial Lannister debt to the Iron Bank of Braavos, the Lannister và Tarly armies then suffered a surprise counter-attaông chồng by Dany, Drogon, & the Dothraki. Jaime’s army was routed & he nearly died trying to kill Dany, but Bronn stopped hyên at the last moment & saved his life.

Meanwhile, invited there by old pal Tyrion, Jon Snow & Davos travelled lớn Dragonstone lớn entreat Dany lớn help fight the Night King. She was sceptical about his claims of an undead army marching South and demanded instead that he pledge his allegiance lớn her. Like Mance Rayder before hlặng, Jon Snow refused to bend the knee, saying his Northern people would never accept her as their Queen because of the Targaryen family history. Dany more or less took Jon and Davos prisoner at Dragonstone, but humoured them by allowing them to mine the Dragonglass they wanted to lớn fight the Night King.

Jon Snow having banished her in season six, his arrival at Dragonstone meant Melisandre left for Volantis lớn stay out of his way, but not before she and Varys had a frosty conversation in which she told him that both of them, Essoyêu thích by birth, were fated to die in Westeros.

Once hostilities had thawed and Jon & Davos were allowed to leave sầu Dragonstone, Davos took advantage of being down South khổng lồ go khổng lồ King’s Landing and retrieve sầu royal Baratheon heir Gendry, who’d been working as a smith in Flea Bottom ever since Davos rescued hyên ổn from Melisandre’s clutches & sent hlặng on his way in a little row boat. Gendry now carries a war-hammer, just lượt thích his father King Robert, and he knows how to lớn use it.

During his time on Dragonstone, Jon became a more & more trusted advisor lớn Dany, và her dragons even allowed hyên ổn to lớn stroke them (perhaps recognising his true Targaryen nature). Dany listened lớn hyên when he told her not khổng lồ burn Euron Greyjoy’s ships in retaliation for his attachồng so that the people wouldn’t see her as just another tyrant.

Earlier in the season, Tyrion & Varys had discussed concerns that Dany’s habit of burning people alive sầu with her dragons might turn her into her despised father, the Mad King. Dany, in turn, expressed concern over Tyrion & Varys’ loyalty to her. Things all got a bit testy.

It was Tyrion who noted that Jon was the lathử nghiệm heroic man to fall in love sầu with Dany, an observation she scoffed at until she realised it was true & she & Jon got hot and heavy in the chambers of her ship. Tyrion saw Jon enter Dany’s private quarters (stop tittering at the back) and foresaw trouble from their relationship. It was Jon who questioned Dany’s belief that she was unable khổng lồ bear children following the witch’s curse in season one. Witches aren’t the most reliable of sources, he sensibly told her.

Dany và Jon’s steamy session came after she’d had flown her dragons khổng lồ his rescue beyond the Wall. To convince sceptical Southerners of the Night King’s existence, Tyrion came up with the plan of bringing one of the White Walkers’ soldiers to lớn show-and-tell, so Jon, Ser Jorah, Gendry, & the Brotherhood Without Banners (incl. the Hound, Ser Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr) volunteered for the job. Things got sticky, however, when they were attacked by a Wight-polar bear then surrounded by an army of Wights and stranded on a rochồng in a patch of ice for days.
